I went to the movie “Transformers: Age of Extinction” this month. It was the first time for me to watch this series. In the movie, some unknown words and names came up. Therefore I couldn’t follow the story enough, but enjoyed it. I’m a little hooked on the various transforming scenes. Why don’t you watch them?
When my family stayed in Hawaii, my daughter found a funny American cartoon on TV. Does anyone knows the title of it? Please leave a comment. I want to watch it ! The story was very interesting. The father turned out to be a gay, then he got a sex change surgery and became a female! lol What a story! I’ve never heard the story like that even on a TV program for adults in Japan. In addition, pictures of American cartoons are very different from Japanese ones. They are very unique. Some of American cartoons are available to watch on pay-TV in Japan.
This post is about Kumamoto where I live again. In Kumamoto city, the tram cars run around downtown. I sometimes see a tram painted colorfully. The other day, when I was driving my car, the Keroro tram passed by me. Have you heard “Sgt. Frog” (Keroro Gunso)? It is a popular cartoon in Japan. Check out Wiki. This comic artist grew up in Kumamoto.
Here is another Keroro tram. I watched Sgt.Frog on TV for the first time when I traveled to Hong Kong. He seems to be popular even overseas.
In the tram, Keroro announces the next stop. His voice is very cute.
Kumafes Report, Part 2
After seeing the Itashas, I went to a dance show. There were several dance performances on the stage. The first performer was “Grand 12Gradan” dressing up (cosplay) as the characters of “One Piece”. One Piece is a very popular cartoon in Japan.

Unfortunately, it was a very cold rainy day. First, I saw Itashas(痛車). Itasha is a car decorated with cute anime, manga or game characters. This was the second time that I saw Itasha this year. The first one was Toyota’s Itashas for its promotion in September. Toyota Itasha This time, these were anime fans’ cars.
Decorated bicycles (痛自転車) were covered with plastic sheets to protect from the rain. There are more photos on my Facebook page. Please check it . Facebook Happy Yuan I would appreciate it if you would give a like to my page.
